Hyderabad Blues !!

These days Hyderabad is wintessing a traffic explosion [is there a phrase like this ?? who cares !!]….Poor city, doesnt have enough infrastructure to manage the even existing vehicle population and the count is on a rise every minute…

Till last year only coming from IIIT to Hitec City used to be a smooth ride.. but now every morning I pray to God once before leaving for office…

Its barely 6Kms from our home[Telecom Nagar] to Office [Cyber Gateway/Mindspace] but it take 20 mins and that also because we have a bike and we believe in adventure biking [want to know more follow us tomorrow morning 😉 ]. Well, if you have a car dont even think to make it before half an hour …

There are some Hot Spots like Kondapur Chou-Rasta..[basically its a “Tiraha” but again, who cares …] Hitech City, Jubilee Hills Check Post etc. where U can easily see a mile long traffic waiting for that damn red signal to turn into green..

…and by Hot spot I mean a real Hot Spot .. like one of our PMCs in college [PMC is short for Piya Milan Chowk 🙂 ]… now the Laila Majnus no longer meet in some old fashioned park or something like that ….now the new age Ghulam no longer sings aati kya khandala .. its aati kya XYZ Chouraha these days…

…well, lets put this traffic thing aside .. there is onething in which Hyderabad is really progressing … going through the current status of Hyderabad I dont think its ever gonna face a water shortage … U wont believe me but the ground water level has rised very dramatically over the last couple of weeks, and now we no longer talk about ground water level we talk about above ground water level .. it was just yesterday the above ground water level in Madhapur was somewhere between 2-3 feets … and it has nothing to do with the drainage system in Hyderabad.. its working more than fine these days and has carried almost a dozen people with its streams for last couple of months .. thanx to the Open manholes, Hyderabadis have a new means of travel now.

Well, there are a few more things which might have caught your attention lately, like the new One way Policy of Hyderabad Traffic police .. but as per the movie Hyderbad Blues be a pure Hyderabadi and just take it all lightly because “Hyderabad main aisa ich hai Yaaron, Dil pe mat le .. Hath main le ” 😉

    dear rocky,
    i extend to you a heartfelt invitation to visit the cities of chennai,delhi and mumbai in that order and to get a first hand feel of what “traffic” is .

    as they say..you realise the value of something only when you dont have it any more..thats what i feel in chennai..
    office is 7-8km away..takes me 10 minutes..IF i go by a back route..at 10:30-11:00 and come back around 11-12..vehicle parking at office is 2km away from the office..almost 10k bikes+2000 cars..
    life is relative
    and i am bored 😛

  3. Sreejith कहते हैं:

  4. Rakesh कहते हैं:

    Adventure biking! Seems to me more like a roller-coaster ride.

    And on special request of Rocky the previous comment has been removed!

    kya likhoon? kyon likhoon?
    kya rakha hai is likhne likhwane mein?
    kya milega likhne se..kya khounga na likhne se?

    kya main frustoo ho gaya hoon?ya bore ho gaya hoon?
    kya main ladki dhoondh raha hoon? ya mujhe ladki mil gayi hai? kya main theek hoon ya theek nahi hoon?

    kya karoon kya na karoon ye kaisi mushkil hai?

  7. sandeep कहते हैं:

    I pity you [:(] and your route.. This area (hitec/madhapur/kondapur) has really started su**ing…nowadays you can even see traffic jams on the road towards hitech-phase 2…

    anyways..keep posting..

  8. Utkarsh Khare कहते हैं:

    @rocky ,
    dude you need to see Chennai traffic to understand the heaven you are in. Sab saale samajhte hain ki sadak baap ki hai .. except for sreejtih who drives so slow that somedays I see cycle riders and even footpath walkers overtaking us.
    @Jaya ,
    geeta saar samjha raha hai kya ??
    @Kunal ,
    Bhai .. yahan nahin to kam se kam mail kar ke bata do ki comment mein kya tha jo rocky ne “request” 🙂 kar ke hatwa diya ..

  9. Rakesh कहते हैं:

    Jaya.. I hrd U were on leave .. didnt knew that U are reading Shree-mad-bhagwat-geeta in your free time 😉

  10. madhu कहते हैं:

    Good one. So, you stay in Telecom nagar. How is this place? I mean is it developed and has good facilities? I was thinking of moving there. Appreciate your reply.
